Welcome to the
13th Annual Haematology Oncology Symposium

Dear colleagues,

Never before have we experienced times like this. Looking at the current situation with COVID-19 worldwide it is clear that this is a time to focus on the unprecedented situation at hand and to first put conferences aside. Despite the fact that HaemOnc 2020 is still more than 3 months away, we all know that COVID-19 will persist for some time and it would not be wise to host HaemOnc2020 during such challenging and uncertain times.

We have decided to postpone the 13th Annual Haematology Oncology Symposium to 19-20 February 2021. We need to give enough time for us to battle through the coming months, for the current uncertainty to settle and to subsequently create a better platform for a successful conference.

We have received such amazing support from our sponsors which enabled a truly wonderful program with many world class speakers and we look forward to a top notch conference next year.

We would like to thank all the delegates that have already registered. We want to encourage all of you to “Save the date”. We will be making history by hosting HaemOnc 2020 in 2021! Strange times indeed!

I pray that all the uncertainty and fear within us would be replaced by hope and a sound mind, so that we would be best equipped to take care of ourselves, our families and our patients during the upcoming months. I wish you all the best!

Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika!

Yours sincerely,

Dr Hannes Koornhof
